CTP recently delivered a one-week training program on Employing Special Techniques in Transnational Organized Crime Investigations (TOCI) to delegations from Ghana, Burkina Faso and Senegal at the West Africa Regional Training Center (RTC) in Accra, Ghana. Held on December 9-13, 2013, the course provided participants with an opportunity to apply specialized techniques to effectively detect and investigate suspected transnational organized crime activity. Using real-world case studies and threaded scenarios, the TOCI training developed specific skills needed to successfully conduct controlled deliveries, undercover meetings, surveillance and other covert operations. Program participants were actively engaged and enthusiastic, commenting that the practical training methodologies would enable them to immediately apply these specialized skills.
CTP manages the West Africa RTC in support of the Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs Anti-Crime Office (INL/C). This program delivery represents one week of INL/C’s six week Advanced Transnational Organized Crime Investigation series.
